full plate for november
Sorry to be so long in updating the blog. October was a slow month for AKA, and some board issues needed to be ironed out before we could coordinate any more events. But now we're back and packing more action than ever before!
A quick recap of October - an impromptu adoption free-discussion around the middle of the month inspired us to make themed-discussion Coffee Nights a regular feature of the AKA event smorgasbord. So we had our first such Night at Amer's on the last Monday in October, paying tribute (accidentally? not so accidentally?) to the very first AKA get-together, which was at Amer's long before AKA was official or even an actual group. The topic was identity and we had a good turnout with seven people, including some enthusiastic new members.
Entering into November, which, incidentally, is National Adoption Month, we had our second Mass Meeting on November 5. We discussed fundraising opportunities, board positions, and brainstormed future events. Among these is a "big" event that will become the target of our fundraising. Stay tuned, we might be flying someone in from the other side of the ocean...
On Saturday we will be having our first Noraebang Night of the semester. It has been far too long since I've been to karoake, myself... don't know about everyone else but I imagine it's been about the same. We'll be meeting at 7 at Seoul Garden and then 9 at Friends Karaoke.
Then on November 16, I'll be hosting the first of a series of Korean cooking classes. Dish #1: Kimchi jjigae. I'll be sending out an email soon regarding RSVPs, but if you are interested, please email the board.
